As a Blu-ray disc fan and collector, I have collected countless Blu-ray discs, abbreviated as BD. As a successor to DVD, BD is able to store high-definition (720p and 1080p) and ultra high-definition video resolution (2160p). BD movie is highly praised for its vivid and high-definition video resolution. Although having the same size as DVDs and CDs, Blu-ray discs contain most data as 25 GB data can be contained per layer.
Collecting Blu-ray discs has become one of my hobbies. After a movie studio releases Blu-ray version of a famous movie such as The Avengers, Doctor Strange, etc., I will pay a visit to Blu-ray store to purchase corresponding Blu-ray disc for collection.
Frankly speaking, I do enjoy watching Blu-ray movies with the help of a Blu-ray player on my home HD TV set. It is extraordinary to enjoy Blu-ray movies on 4K screen TV. However, as a collector, I put much emphasis on the well-keeping of Blu-ray discs. Due to frequently in-and-out of Blu-ray drive, it will inevitably cause some scratches on Blu-ray discs. Giving that the price of Blu-ray disc is high, it is unwise to leave Blu-ray discs subject to being scratched. Therefore I am looking for some ways to protect my precious Blu-ray disc collections. Ripping Blu-ray seems to be an ideal way to well protect Blu-ray discs.
In order to rip Blu-ray disc, a Blu-ray ripping program is a must. As many Blu-ray discs are protected and encrypted by AACS, BD+ or the latest MKB protection, an eligible Blu-ray ripper must be able to decrypt, rip and convert those Blu-ray discs under protection. Some Blu-ray discs are protected by region code (Region A, Region B, and Region C), so a qualified Blu-ray converter should be an all-region Blu-ray ripping program. I have tried many Blu-ray ripping programs, but none of them delivered a satisfactory result until I met a Blu-ray ripping program from Leawo Software.
Having an easy-to-use interface, Leawo Blu-ray Ripper offers an easy solution for users to easily import and rip Blu-ray discs. The program supports various languages, including English, German, Japanese, Simplified Chinese, Russian, Hungarian, Armenian, Spanish, French, Portuguese and Dutch. Therefore users can set UI in their preferred language. In addition to Blu-ray disc input, Leawo Blu-ray Ripper has support for Blu-ray folder and Blu-ray ISO image file. DVD counterparts can also be imported into the program for DVD conversion thanks to its downward compatibility.
As for output profile, common video formats (MP4, AVI, MOV, MKV, FLV, etc.), HD video formats (HD MP4, HD MOV, HD MKV, HD VAI, etc.), 4K video formats (4K MP4 and 4K MKV), audio formats (AAC, AC3, MP3, etc.), and various device models (Apple devices, Samsung devices, Microsoft devices, etc.) all can be set as output. As MP4 is a universally accepted video format, I often employ Leawo Blu-ray Ripper to rip Blu-ray to MP4 for Blu-ray backup and playback on some portable devices such as iPhone 7 on the go.
Leawo Blu-ray Ripper functions well on my Windows 10 PC. According to Leawo Software, it can be perfectly operated on Windows XP/Vista/7/8/8.1. Mac users need to switch to its Mac counterpart Leawo Blu-ray Ripper for Mac to rip and convert Blu-ray content.
